Who Are We?

All children should experience the joy of laughter, the wonder of surprise and the excitement of receiving special gifts, especially at Christmas time, for their birthdays and other special events in their life.

Unfortunately, there are so many children in the Pittsburgh area who won’t receive gifts at Christmas, for so many different reasons. In situations like these, especially when children are affected, it calls to our hearts to reach out and help, and that’s the mission of Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes.

It started with the simple and caring act of kindness with the Greater Pittsburgh Business Connection, a 60-member networking group.  They collected toys and donations for children on two consecutive weekends before Christmas for many years. But their commitment to help children became bigger, much bigger and as a result of their compassionate efforts, they established Toys for Pittsburgh Tikes, a 501(c)(3) organization
